In the hours before the death of 18-year-old Mzee Mohammed Daley , his worried dad described “seeing the fear in my boy’s eyes.”
Mzee , who had long struggled with mental health difficulties, was at the start of a terrifying descent into the psychotic episode that killed him, on the warm evening of July 13, 2016, in Liverpool ONE shopping centre.
For three years speculation and rumour surrounded the very public death of the student, who dreamed of opening a Jamaican-style eatery in the city.
